2016 Macbook Pro Battery Pack – Anker PowerCore 20100

I’m travelling around for a while, and I’ve been on the hunt for a good way to give my 13-inch 2016 MacBook Pro (Touch Bar edition) a bit of extra charge. There’s information scattered around the internet on what works and what doesn’t, and I wanted to collect it here so that you don’t have to do as much research as I did.

The short story: the Anker PowerCore+ 20100 with USB-C is the best way to charge a 2016 MacBook Pro using an external battery pack.

There are some caveats, but the Anker is the best way that I’ve discovered.
